With the Leafs' season done, I imagine that mailbag questions are going to be a bit weirder. Mostly, "what do you think about this draft prospect", "who should the Leafs sign", and "why does Tim Leiweke appear to be flying a giant blimp over South East Etobicoke". I'm not good at following amateur prospects, I don't like playing crystal ball, and I'm voting for whichever mayoral candidate declares war on Mimico.

So during the offseason, instead of doing a mailbag every Monday, I'll do one every time I get five questions that I want to answer. So really, it's in your hands.

To submit a question, send me a tweetemail meask me, or leave a comment.

A strong finish can make up for a weak start. I'm not sure if that metaphor better suits the third period of this game, or the weekend as a whole, but the Toronto Marlies pulled off a three goal rally over the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins to avoid being swept on this weekend roadtrip.

For the past eight weekends, making a trip to Ricoh Coliseum has been a part of my routine. After all, the Marlies have scheduled themselves to be at home for one or two games in all of those weekends. This time around, however? It's a road trip, their last of the season. It's fun for me; this afternoon, I got to go to the Exhibition grounds as a fan and catch a Toronto FC game (they lost). For the Marlies, however, it still meant hockey, but a few hundred kilometres away. The game was against the Syracuse Crunch, and it turned into a physical event and a 6-3 loss.

This game is meaningless. Like, beyond meaningless. The Leafs have no shot at the playoffs, no shot at taking at a serious level, it's just a game for the sake of going out with their heads up high. Or at least, not ending with four straight losses for the first time in 29 years. We didn't even get to see that - the Leafs quiet departed the season with a 1-0 loss.
